Residents calling for better lighting in new pedestrian tunnel at southwest corner of Washington Square
Above: A new pedestrian access way at the southwest corner of Washington Square Park in Philadelphia. The "tunnel," which required the demolition of the first floor of an historic South Washington Square building and millions of dollars to then make the upper floors structurally sound, opened just over two weeks ago after a nearly decade long court battle. Nearby residents are now calling for improved lighting of the passageway that links the park and Manning Street to the south.

New York--Could the NHL move to inflatable pucks? Reports out of the Big Apple seem to think that the league is "blown away" by the media circus that deflategate has spurred around the NFL and "wants a piece of the action." An NHL puck is one inch thick, three inches across and about six ounces in weight. A move to an inflatable puck would dramatically reduce the weight and nearly double the dimensions, but the league wants higher television ratings and more media spotlight. Controversy over the proper inflation of a puck could provide exactly that. "Maybe we could have our own deflategate," said one NHL official. "We could use the same 12.5 to 14.5 psi thing that the NFL has. Maybe [Sidney] Crosby likes them at 11.5 psi and reporters from all over the world question him about how he may have let some air out. I'm just blown away by the media hype from [deflategate]. Just blown away."

The coach's trunk appeared "empty" to the untrained eye, said one NFL official participating in the investigation of the Patriots. "But the trunk was filled with air. Air that could have come from deflated footballs. We're running many tests," said the official.
"The air from those footballs is somewhere," said one NFL coach who wanted to remain anonymous. "It didn't just disappear into thin air. It's in someone's trunk, backyard, or at the bottom of the Charles River."

Year in Review: New Jersey spends billions to dredge, widen Hackensack River for Super Bowl party cruise ships
The state also raised many low bridges to allow the tall cruise ships to navigate upriver.
East Rutherford, NJ--Nearly a year has passed since New Jersey hosted the first outdoor (expected) cold weather Super Bowl, where the Seahawks thrashed the Broncos like it was 1987, 1988, or 1990. Officially, the big game festivities were a bi-state affair, a first for the NFL, as events were also held across the Hudson River in Manhattan (The Big Apple Garden Super Bowl).
The two states invested a hefty sum of cash to have the game, especially for security measures. New Jersey also spent billions more—possibly to outshine their NYC neighbors—to dredge and widen the Hackensack River and to remove and raise bridges as needed in order to accommodate large party cruise ships to dock “as close as possible” to MetLife Stadium.
Manhattan hosted its own cruise ship party along the Hudson at Pier 53. While this celebration featured the likes of Jay Z, Beyoncé, Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Jennifer Lopez, and Brad Pitt, the Hackensack River ships welcomed Macaulay Culken, the Spin Doctors, Matthew Modine, Marla Gibbs, Greg Evigan, Scott Wolf, and many more.
The Garden State, according to Governor Christ Christie, was "more than happy" to be co-hosting the NFL's showcase competition with New York. But, at the same time, did not want to be "completely in the shadows of the twenty-three square mile island's skyscrapers" when it came to the big parties and the popular, interactive NFL Experience for the fans.
The task to bring three Carnival cruise liners up the Hackensack River, to within walking distance of MetLife, aimed to move the party epicenter from Manhattan to North Jersey. Not only did the waterway require dredging but several low-clearing bridges (rail and automobile) needed to be raised fifty feet or more and passages widened to allow the ships to navigate north to East Rutherford.
